Okay, so... generally there's no reason to assume that a right-leaning website is any less trustworthy than a left-leaning site, but THIS has got to be a load of bull, right?

Clearly skewed. They must have only polled Hispanic Americans instead of just plain ole Hispanics.

National poll where 10% of those polled identified as Hispanic when the US population is 17%. Also when they split out the hispanic responses the margin of error of 2.5% for the overall results is not applicable to just the Hispanic segment. I think it is safe to say it is highly dubious.

Exactly. I'm sure the split is like 10% Hispanic American and the other 7% is just normal Hispanics.

Could be an impact on results, but I would hope they had a method to eliminate ineligible voters from responding. Not enough data to know either way.
